Ice Breaker on Mississippi River

Ice Breaker on Mississippi River

The 2022 navigation season on the Upper Mississippi River is officially underway with the first boat breaking through the ice on Lake Pepin. 

The honor goes to the M.V.W. Red Harris.  The ship made its way through the ice yesterday.  Lake Pepin is the last part of the Mississippi River to see its ice break up this winter.  The Red Harris had nine barges in tow on its way from St. Louis.
